"The Splendid Century," penned by the brother of famous author C. S. Lewis ("Alice in Wonderland"), is a depiction of various aspects of life in France during the reign of Louis XIV, gleaned through the author's thorough research of records, correspondence, and journals of the time. Using anecdotal evidence, the book probes in detail various facets of life in France during this time, including the lives of nobles (particularly those at court) as well as commoners, religious institutions and conflicts, the organization of the French army and its restructuring, rural life and city life, what life was like on galley ships and passenger sailing ships, how doctors were trained, and the state of women's education. The author also discusses the background behind Louis XIV's policies, illustrating their impact on French civilization, both during this time and for generations to come. A must-read for anyone interested in French history.
